Nickelodeon has lined up a star studded July

MUMBAI: While the competitor has an animated cartoons line up, Nickelodeon is using star power to rope in audience this July.

Starting 5 July, Amanda Bynes has been bought back on popular demand to star in a two-hour nonstop show More Amanda Please! With her crazy mix of mad sketches, surprise guest and crazy characters; the talented teenybopper is bound to be a hit with the kids, says the release. But that's not all; Nick has a special weekend line up for its little audience. While the celebrities Britney Spears and Avril Lavinge will make special appearances on the All That Celebrities Weekend, the main excitement will be provided by Britney's little sister Jamie Spears who will be making her debut in this half an hour variety series.

Besides Amanda's show, the channel will also be reviving The Brothers Garcia show. The nutty show about a close knit Hispanic American family live in San Antonio, Texas comprising three boisterous Brothers Garcia - Larry, George, Carlos, their sister Lorena and their parents, was a surefire hit. The quirky comedy about the sometimes-wacky world of the Gracias told from the point of view of the youngest brother Larry will be back on air 7 July.

Gross Out Marathon featuring SpongeBob SquarePants will be back along with The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron on 12 July. While on 19 July, Nicktoon featuring Rugrats, Hey Arnold and The Wild Thornberrys will introduce a new twist in the tale.

Besides the celebrity weekend starting its new season on 26 July, Nick has revamped its Sunday special SoNick. In addition to the weekly music countdown featuring popular kids music Nick will also provide viewers with all the juicy news and gossip on the band or singer featured the Nick viewers. Viewers can vote for top five video of the week via emails or text messaging.
